After the last update, I noticed my desktop looked different. After some poking around I found that with urw-fonts-2.3.6, nimbus sans appears to have some additional space above every character making it look strange. Reverting back to urw-fonts-2.1-r2 cured the problem.
I'm not sure if this warrants a bug report, but since the upgrade makes anything using the font look really different, a ewarn about this would possibly be OK.
Can you attach some screenshots perhaps?

Reopen or noone will notice again.
OK, I attached two screenshots. Apart from urw-fonts (and windows focus) there is no difference between them. Please observe the window decorations that get enlarged due to the additional space.
Thank you for report Christian. I've added elog message in media-fonts/urw-fonts-2.3.6. FIXED.
Given that urw-fonts-2.1-r2 was removed from the tree nearly 9 years ago, I think it would be a good idea to remove the elog and stop pointing users at this ancient and by now irrelevant bug.
